Book cover for Unlimited Memory: How to Use Advanced Learning Strategies to Learn Faster, Remember More and be More Productive (Mental Mastery Book 1)
Your beliefs of what your concentration and memory can do may be your own limited version of the truth. Many people never get a taste of their true potential because they have decided to entertain only a limited view of what they can do.

Aleksandra Gacevic and 1033 other people liked Lynda's review of A Man Called Ove:
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
""Death is a strange thing. People live their whole lives as if it does not exist, and yet it's often one of the greatest motivations for living. Some of us, in time, become so conscious of it that we live harder, more obstinately, with more fury...." Read more of this review »

Abhijit V. Banerjee
“Many people would also agree with Amartya Sen, the
economist-philosopher and Nobel Prize Laureate, that poverty leads to an
intolerable waste of talent. As he puts it, poverty is not just a lack of money; it is
not having the capability to realize one’s full potential as a human being. 10 A
poor girl from Africa will probably go to school for at most a few years even if
she is brilliant, and most likely won’t get the nutrition to be the world-class
athlete she might have been, or the funds to start a business if she has a great
idea.”
Abhijit V. Banerjee, Poor Economics: A Radical Rethinking of the Way to Fight Global Poverty

Abhijit V. Banerjee
“Aren’t we, those who live in the rich world, the constant
beneficiaries of a paternalism now so thoroughly embedded into the system that
we hardly notice it? It not only ensures that we take care of ourselves better than
we would if we had to be on top of every decision, but also, by freeing us from
having to think about these issues, it gives us the mental space we need to focus
on the rest of our lives. This does not absolve us of the responsibility of
educating people about public health. We do owe everyone, the poor included, as
clear an explanation as possible of why immunization is important and why they
have to complete their course of antibiotics. But we should recognize—indeed
assume—that information alone will not do the trick.”
Abhijit V. Banerjee, Poor Economics: A Radical Rethinking of the Way to Fight Global Poverty

Abhijit V. Banerjee
“The average poverty line in the fifty
countries where most of the poor live is 16 Indian rupees per person per day. 2
People who live on less than that are considered to be poor by the government of
their own countries. At the current exchange rate, 16 rupees corresponds to 36
U.S. cents. But because prices are lower in most developing countries, if the
poor actually bought the things they do at U.S. prices, they would need to spend
more—99 cents. So to imagine the lives of the poor, you have to imagine having
to live in Miami or Modesto with 99 cents per day for almost all your everyday
needs (excluding housing). It is not easy—in India, for example, the equivalent
amount would buy you fifteen smallish bananas, or about 3 pounds of low-
quality rice. Can one live on that? And yet, around the world, in 2005, 865
million people (13 percent of the world’s population) did.”
Abhijit V. Banerjee, Poor Economics: A Radical Rethinking of the Way to Fight Global Poverty

Robert T. Kiyosaki
“... shvatio sam da je borba
konačni test volje i obuke.
Nema drugog mjesta, a
pobjednik je onaj koji je
najspremniji.
Promijenio sam svoj stav i
sada sam razmišljao ovako:
"Borba nije rizična.
Rizična je
nepripremljenost."
Shvatio sam da
poduzetništvo nije rizično.
Rizična je nepripremljenost.”
Robert T. Kiyosaki

“And whatever happens next, I know that I am changed. I can no longer defend a king who doesn’t
value me, the pawn who faces the enemy front lines. I can no longer fight for my own virtue, a knight who
wields her sword in service. And I can no longer hide behind the walls of Gabriel’s castle. I’m a queen in
my own right, whether I fall or fight another day, whatever my next move, wherever I land. I have the
whole board to consider, every direction available. My fate may not decide the game, but I can go
anywhere I want.
The queen has freedom the king does not. She decides her own fate”
Sky Warren
